In their efforts for world domination, the fantasy football game Sorare has announced that Club Universitario de Deportes from Peru has joined the game. This is the first club from Peru joining the game. Players of the fantasy football game can now find the new player cards on the marketplace.

With Club Universitario de Deportes the Sorare ecosystem adds one of the biggest clubs of Peru. They have won 26 first division titles and were the first club to ever reach the finals of the Copa Libertadores. After clubs from Argentina, Mexico and Brazil joined the fantasy football game, Peru is the fourth country to have an official presence.

Sorare has the ambition to embrace as many national leagues as possible. They have signed agreements with entire football competitions, like recently the Spanish La Liga or the Dutch Eredivisie. On the other hand they also work with individual clubs, as they recently signed the Swiss club Sion FC.

Explain Sorare to me please

Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. Blockchain technology introduces actual scarcity to digital cards, so these cards have a limited supply. Players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitch, the card holders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will earn new cards as a reward. The cheapest cards generally sell for a couple of dollars, while the most wanted ones go for well over a thousand dollars a piece. Join the game!

Ultimately, Sorare’s attraction is twofold. On the one hand you want to have the superstars, purely as a collectible. However, from a gameplay point of view you’d want the cards of players that do important work for their team. For example players with a high pass completion, or strikers that score lots of goals, and defenders that make lots of tackles.

How to play Sorare

You can play Sorare for free, but that takes away lots of the excitement to be fair. You need to purchase collectible player cards, and the players on these cards will become your team. Each game week you select the players, each represented by an NFT card, of which you think they will perform best.

For every game week managers will need to select a team from the player card collection. They will need one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder, one attacker and an extra field player. Players earn points based on the real-life performance of those players. Therefore players that play regularly, are active in winning team, hardly make mistakes, and score a lot of goals, are generally valuable. Each card can only be used once during a game week, but if you have enough cards you can join in multiple leagues.

If you make enough points, you will earn 0.01 or 0.02 ETH. Are you among the best? Then you will receive a free card, which are much more valuable. Learn more on how to play and earn in Sorare here, or sign up for the game here.
